Option 2: KAPI-CUP®- Available in 3 sizes in packs of 5

Kapi-Cups have a cut out on the non-drinking side so that they can be tilted without interference by the nose.
This allows the drinker to avoid tilting the head back, thus minimising the chance of liquid entering the respiratory tubes and causing choking.
